       crypto_certs  -	directory  for	certificate  files for Solaris Crypto‐
       graphic Framework




       The /etc/crypto/certs directory contains ASN.1 BER or PEM encoded  cer‐
       tificate files for use by the Solaris Cryptographic Framework.

       A  default installation contains root anchors and signing certificates.
       The CA and SUNWobjectCA certificates are	 the  trust  anchors  for  all
       other certificates. Other certificates contain the certificates used to
       sign and verify the Solaris user and kernel cryptographic plug-ins

       Additional signing certificates may be installed by third-party crypto‐
       graphic providers. They should either be copied to /etc/crypto/certs or
       included in the package that delivers the provider.

       Only certificates that are issued by the CA  or	SUNWobjectCA  certifi‐
       cates  and  include the organization unit "Solaris Cryptographic Frame‐
       work" in their subject distinguished names are accepted by the  Solaris
       Cryptographic  Framework. This restriction is in place due to US Export
       Law on the export of open cryptographic interfaces at the time of ship‐
       ping this revision of the product.
